Disgraced GOP Lobbyist: Put Clinton Behind Bars

Hillary Clinton deserves to be in jail, according to convicted lobbyist Jack Abramoff

The Hill reported that the former Republican operative accused Clinton of committing crimes just as serious as those for which he and others have served prison time. “She is the most corrupt person in the history of the United States to get this close to the presidency, including by leaps and bounds Warren Harding,” Abramoff declared Thursday on “The Jamie Weinstein Show.”

He claimed that Clinton, while she was secretary of state, fostered a scandalous relationship between the government and her family’s charitable foundation. “Her staff — Cheryl Mills, Huma Abedin — were very involved in facilitating donors getting special access,” Abramoff explained. “Forget about whether they got results, because that’s not really the metric. The metric is, are you using your public service to do something for somebody in exchange for a quid pro quo, and there seems to be very little doubt there is.”

The former lobbyist, who spent four years in prison after confessing to charges of conspiracy, fraud and tax evasion in 2006, argued that “even if all of the money that she extracted … from these world leaders in exchange for the favors they did in the State Department went to altruistic purposes, it’s still improper.”

Abramoff added: “Just getting the meeting, getting the access, getting use over government public-service employees by virtue of your contributions, that is special access. That may not be statutory bribery, but that is certainly absolutely honest services fraud, without question.”
